When you get to Thursday you start getting anxious for the football weekends. And this one is busy to be sure. The Tigers are off Thursday then open a playoff determining 10-game road trip in Anaheim Friday night against the dangerous Angels.
The Lions open at home at 1pm Sunday against the St. Louis Rams and you figure the Lions should get off to a winning start in their season right? But is their running game any better than it was a year ago when it was anemic at season's end?
You figure Michigan State should win at Central Michigan no problem right? What a crowd there will be in Mount Pleasant for the 3:30pm kick-- same time in Ann Arbor for Michigan's home opening kick against Air Force. Both the Spartans and Wolverines are heavy favorites after tough openers.
It's already weekend number three in high school football. No big showdown games this week but I see all the 2-0 teams in the area winning with Bath having the toughest test at home against Saranac.
Tiger Wood is playing in another Fed Ex cup tournament and MSU hosts a volleyball tournament. And the weather looks good so there should be something with sporting fun for everyone.
